Time Out Melbourne

Catch a flick under the stars at these outdoor cinemas

Coburg Drive-In

The Coburg Drive-In has a retro diner with serving food and cinema staples, the comfort of your own vehicle in which to make out, and the opportunity to see if Johnny Quarterback is finally going to ask you to the prom. Coburg.

Lunar Drive-In

The Lunar Drive-in Theatre Dandenong is the largest drive-in in Australia. Films are shown every day except Christmas Day and the Lunar Café is open every night before and during the shows. Dandenong.

Valhalla Social Cinema

Vahalla Social Cinema takes over Genovese Coffee Roasters for pop-up, drive in/ride in cinema screenings. Think small audiences, creative programming and a community feel. Coburg.

Shadow Electric Open Air Cinema 2014

Situated in the historic grounds of Abbotsford Convent, the Shadow Electric plays host to an eclectic mix of emerging and established cinema. Get yourself down here for happy hour at the bar and settle down for a night of cinematic magic. Abbotsford, 21 Nov-1 Mar.

Moonlight Cinema 2013-2014

Certainly the most romantic way to spend a night at the pictures, the Moonlight Cinema takes advantage of Melbourne's gorgeous Royal Botanical Gardens to screen the summers latest releases, cult classics and family favourites. South Yarra, 5 Dec-30 Mar.

Rooftop Cinema 2013-2014

The Rooftop Cinema is another tried and true movie buff hangout, with the clear night sky – despite its inner city placement. The chairs at Rooftop, one must add, are exceedingly comfy – a small but important difference. Melbourne, 5 Dec-5 Apr.
